Trading stocks can be fun, but you know what’s more fun? Automated trading stocks! Or being able to build your own stock trading software. That’s pretty cool. Luckily, Alpaca (strange name, I know), has you covered. You can use their completely free, no commission trading service to build whatever you like using a simple REST API for placing orders. It’s quite astonishing that something of this professional caliber is even available for free, and I highly invite any developer interested in stocks to investigate it. Their paper trading API is very fun to mess around with.
And they didn’t pay me to write this review, imagine that.
